"Katniss Everdeen, if she existed, would not have qualified for the audition to play Katniss Everdeen. Let’s just think about that."
asked: "By that definition, I am olive skinned (being of Middle Eastern descent) but my Chinese boyfriend isn’t. However, our skin tones are virtually identical, and it doesn’t make much sense to me that a word that can be used to describe my skin colour can’t also be used to describe his (identical) skin colour. So I feel that the term ‘olive skinned’ shouldn’t necessarily be linked to ethnicity, and that if a PoC chooses to call themselves olive skinned then that is their choice."
asked: ""Olive skin describes a skin color spectrum that is frequent among populations from Southern Europe, the Mediterranean, the Middle East, Central Asia and North Africa, as well as parts of the Horn of Africa and South Asia." For the people who claim that only Mediterranean people possess that skin tone. The person picked to play Katniss could've been North African, Central Asian, or East Asian. They could've picked someone with natural dark skin. But they chose someone pale and tanned her a bit."
asked: "I've always considered olive-toned to mean a variety of colors? I mean olives have multiple skin colors and I've seen olive-skinned used to describe people of very different colorings."
asked: "I just googled her and she is olive skinned? More so than Jennifer? Like, she's German but she's definitely olive skinned. I don't think I'd like her as Katniss but like... she... is... olive skinned."
She’s Quechua, Huachipaeri, Swiss, and German, just so you know.
asked: "While i agree with a lot of what you say here, Q'orianka Kilcher is no more olive skinned than Jennifer Lawrence. She's a person of color, yes, but POCs are not the same. Olive skinned people are generally from the Mediterranean people of middle eastern, eastern European and north African descent. They're still quite pale and have a golden undertone, not a bronze one. I'm sure it wasn't a malicious move in any way but I feel like skin colors that aren't white shouldn't be interchangeable."
posting this for discussion….
I’ve always felt Q’Orianka Kilcher is “olive skinned”?

I’m in a dress of the exact same design of my wedding dress, only it’s the color of coal and made of tiny feathers. Wonderingly, I lift my long, flowing sleeves into the air, and that’s when I see myself on the television screen. Clothed in black except for the white patches on my sleeve. Or should I say my wings.
Because Cinna has turned me into a mockingjay.
imsirius asked you:
mmmm can I request something Gale and Katniss? :D :D :D Like maybe Katniss teaching him how to swim, or or or this quote: “My breath makes small white clouds as it hits the air. It’s as cold as a November night at home. One where I’ve slipped into the woods, lantern in hand, to join Gale at some prearranged place where we’ll sit bundled together, sipping herb tea from metal flasks wrapped in quilting, hoping game will pass our way as the morning comes on” Thank you in advance if ever <3
